The Airline & Travel Payments Recovery Virtual Summit (ATPS Virtual) is co-hosted with UATP. This event is dedicated to payments and fraud prevention strategies needed for airlines and travel-related businesses to survive. It will take place for two hours on-line each day on both October 20 and October 21 from 10am - Noon Eastern Time. There will also be an Asia-Pacific focused track on October 22 from 4pm to 6pm Sydney Time.

In the Covid-19 economy, no area of payments and fraud prevention can be overlooked as an opportunity for cost savings and new revenue streams. So, the ATPS Virtual is the place to connect with content to rapidly improve bottom-line revenues and to make the contacts which Airlines & Travel Companies need to do this. It is also a chance to hear of new ideas in the areas of Payment Acceptance and Fraud Prevention to bring the industry back to profitability.

This virtual event will feature focused presentations, panel discussions, interactive roundtable networking, as well as a pre-event app with networking and the ability to contact fellow participants.
